WILSONVILLE, Ore. – Bob McQuown’s quiet Saturday morning at his condo complex was interrupted when a hot air balloon landed in the middle of his street.
“I took a still shot at first and then I took the video,” said McQuown.
It’s unclear what caused the emergency landing. No one was hurt.
“The basket of that balloon was just brushing against the top of that fir tree,” McQuown said.
Other neighbors soon noticed what was going on in the sky above their homes.
“When I called police, the non-emergency, I said the air balloon stopped in the middle of the street,” said neighbor Dana Howe. “She said ‘what?’ I said the air balloon’s in the middle of the street. She just didn’t want to believe me.”
Police arrived and helped block the street so the balloon could make a safe landing.
